Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo® Pods, 12 count

This is the same coffee blend we've been serving in our stores since we handcrafted the very first Starbucks® latte. This blend of high-grown beans reaches its flavor peak through a longer roast time, achieving a dark, caramelly sweetness.

This coffee is specially packaged in 12 pods for exclusive use with the Verismo® System.

Product packaging may differ from that pictured.

A Better Cup

We're committed to ethically sourcing and roasting the highest-quality arabica coffee in the world. When we buy coffee this way, it fosters a better future for farmers, and a more stable climate for the planet. It also helps create a long-term supply of the high-quality beans we've been carefully blending, roasting and packing fresh for more than 40 years.

Espresso Coffee Verismo® Pods, exclusively for the Verismo® System

This is the high-quality arabica coffee you love from Starbucks, roasted, ground and packaged specially for single-cup use with the Verismo® System. Insert espresso coffee pod into machine and push "Espresso" button for a delicious shot of espresso. Americanos and Caffè Lattes can also be made with this espresso pod.

Pods are for single use only. Never reuse. Use espresso pod only with espresso brew cycle. Misuse of pods can damage machine.

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

Pods Engineering Iffy


from Cool, Ca

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

I've had the decaf pods to dump coffee grounds on the first pass and don't even think about two which shouldn't be a issue. The regular espresso pods have never given me trouble.

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

Always love the taste of Starbucks Expresso...but the new pods explode if you use anything but the expresso setting. I used to make a whole cup of coffee with them. Lost about 6 pods so far...cup full of grounds. Figured it out tho...just make an expresso...take the pod out and then
put more hot water in after the pod is out. Crazy!!!

pods explode

By kt

from long beach, ca

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

Unfortunately, every single pod has exploded in my verismo coffee maker. What's even more unfortunate is that I bought this machine last year for decaf only. Therefore, this machine is useless now. The previous pods in the white packaging worked well without incident. It seems that these new pods are meant for a new machine that will be coming out soon and are not compatible with my verismo. What a waste!

New decaf espresso pods blowing out

By Americano-fans-from-AL

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

To start, I have to say that My wife and I have generally loved the verismo espresso pods (for almost two years), have used them daily (sometimes twice daily!) to make americano's (using the "coffee" button with the espresso pods)...and have formed a dependence on them...thus the problem. The regular non-decaf espresso pods have always worked great (and continue to work great - we give them 5 stars), and the older decaf espresso pods worked great, but the new black-colored decaf pods just don't seem to work correctly. They seem to cause the water to flow very slowly as the coffee/americano is brewing (some type of restriction?), and then they typically blow out (not always...but typically) before the end of the cycle, causing grinds in the mug. Very disappointing for those of us who have LOVED the verismo americano's. Starbucks, Please fix the packaging!

Not so great

By Normally a Starbucks fan

from WA - Washington

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

These pods did not work well in our Verismo. The water went through very slowly and sometimes the pod blew out. Previous pods of decaf espresso have been fine. When I asked about returning I was told that I had to take the package to a Fed Ex store. Not very convenient.

Great tasting decaf espresso

By MsLucy

from Grafton, WI

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

I love having decaf espresso anytime I want it with my Verismo system. It makes a hot quick latte and simple to use. I wish they had more decaf options however.

new packaging and flavor excellent

By cynthia the coffee drinker

from hilton head,sc

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

the decaf espresso is very flavorful as usual, but it is getting harder to find in the I've been ordering it......not something I really like to do..
It just takes too long, I'd rather pick up 3, in the store and take advantage of the discount...
I would also appreciate some additional flavors in the decaf brewed pods..

Tastes great, pods don't work well sometimes

By Tired of exploding pods

from Austin, TX

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Starbucks Decaf Espresso Roast Espresso Verismo Pods:

We prefer to use our espresso pods to make Americanos, by just selecting the Coffee cup button (not the Espresso cup button followed by water).

The regular espresso pods work beautifully this way. We've never had an issue.

However, the Decaf pods (this batch included), are hit or miss with this method. Sometimes they'll work (although very slowly). Sometimes they explode.

The last batch we had was much better quality overall (very few explody pods).

This batch has been very random. Some work fine, some explode before 2 shots worth of liquid have passed through them. Success rate is about 50% so far, which is far from acceptable.

This has been an ongoing problem with Decaf Espresso pods forever. I've noted this problem from time to time in reviews, and complained about it to Starbucks a few times, with no results (or even a reply).

We've reached the point that we might stop getting the decaf espresso pods, because they're just too much trouble (even though they taste so much better than the standard decaf coffee pods).

Please, Starbucks, make the decaf espresso pods work for a whole cup of coffee like the regular pods do.
